Board of directors
The Board of Directors is the highest decision-making body in the company except when it comes to issues which, according to law or the Articles of Association, must be reserved for shareholders.
The Group develops high-performance, innovative solutions for private individuals, cities and businesses, whereby it uses its expertise in four key sectors: natural gas and renewable energy, renewable electrical energy, energy-efficiency and digital technologies.
In order to take the lead in Belgium in relation to the energy transition and, in turn, facilitate a carbon neutral economy, ENGIE has all energy activities in-house: production, optimisation of consumption, research, innovation, maintenance, engineering, construction and project implementation.
They all form part of the ENGIE Group.
Every ENGIE subsidiary in Belgium has its own Board of Directors and engages with unions. The biggest is Electrabel NV. The Board of Directors comprises members from the Group, as well as external members.
On an operational level, ENGIE is subdivided into Business Units (BUs) There are 25 BUs on Group level, 6 of which are active in Belgium:
In Belgium, ENGIE has 17,000 employees and over 220 researchers all working on tackling the challenges of a carbon neutral transition.
Health, Safety and Well-being at work are fundamental values to Electrabel. Since 1995, successive Global Health and Safety Plans provided a structure to the approach to Health, Safety and Well-being at work.
The company will rely on its Global Health and Safety Plan 2020-2025 to achieve its goal “zero accident”. The plan dovetails with a general approach focused on dynamic risk management and is the result of discussions with various stakeholders. It embodies the company’s strategy for Well-being at work for the next five years.
The Group has a constant drive to deepen its commitment to ethics and therefore wishes to provide easy-to-use tools for anyone to report inappropriate situations or those that are not in line with our principles or current laws and regulations. In this respect ENGIE has put in place a whistleblowing System that is open to all employees and stakeholders (suppliers, sub-contractors, unions, NGOs, etc.).
This System supplements existing channels and strengthens the Group's Ethics and Compliance & Privacy efforts. It is open to anyone and is easy to use, confidential, and anonymous if need be.
